German court ruled in favor of Adidas in patent litigation with Nike

On November 7, a German court ruled in favor of sports shoes and apparel manufacturer Adidas AG in a patent dispute with rival Nike Inc., lifting the provisional ban under which Adidas was banned from selling running shoes presented at the London Olympics.

Recall that Nike accused Adidas of copying its technology for Flyknit shoes and its use in adizero primeknit sneakers.

Asiareport notes that Nike may appeal the court ruling.

In late August, a German court upheld Nike’s request for a temporary injunction to sell Adidas for patent infringement. But this verdict was overturned on Wednesday, as a court in Nuremberg ruled that Nike was unable to prove the violation of its patent, adding that the legitimacy of the patent itself raises questions.

Adidas has released a statement in which it welcomes the court ruling. The company refutes the assumption that it copied the Nike technology and asks to revoke the patent, since the technology has been known since the 1940's.

Nike comments could not be obtained, asiareport.ru reports.
